Storyline

Having learned from a client that Alicia will be taking one of her top clients with her to a new firm, Diane Lockhart tells Will who goes ballistic. He challenges Alicia and convenes a meeting of the partners to have her fired. Will then sets his sights on the fourth year associates and they are all soon out on the street. Both sides engage in a battle to keep clients on side. Lockhart Gardner plays hardball insinuating to clients that Alicia was fired due to financial irregularities and David Lee makes sure they can't move into their new offices. Their main concern is to keep ChumHum as a client and both sides are soon in court battling it out. In the end, its Peter Florrick who gives Alicia a helping hand. Written by garykmcd

Pathetic
17 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely disagree with the other reviews on this show. I was disgusted with Alicia's character for the last few shows. How can she not get how wrong it is to turn her back on someone who gave her a chance. The way she handles everything was petty and immature and to be honest, in complete contradiction to what we love about her character. Her lack of acceptance of what she has done is absurd and the thought of her working with a bunch of 20 -something years old, leaves her looking like she is settling and desperate. The unethical decisions by her husband, not to mention corruption and illegal use of power, makes me lose all respect for him as well. They care only about themselves and that is not in line with who their characters have been throughout the show. I was super disappointed and this was one of the first times that it was easy to turn Netflix off. I think I will take a break from this show for a while.
